From the Director:
We have circle time, art time, story time, sing songs, build on our social & motor skills,and have outdoor play. We also have a V'Smile with Art Pad/Dance Mat along with My First LeapPad to help with our reading skills. We take the time to enjoy each day giving to us and to enjoy our time as a child.
My experience includes: running my own family childcare, being a former Toddler/Preschool Teacher of 12yrs, and also a mother of two. I have been CPR/First Aid trained and had certified training in years past. I have great references that include past and present parents.
As a family child care provider, my goal is to provide a safe and happy place for children where they can learn and grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially at their own pace. I believe children learn through play and benefit from a structured yet flexible schedule. Activities will be offered which stimulate sensory motor development, language development and social interaction. The development of strong self-esteem and respect is also a major goal. I really do not just want to be another daycare, but a place where your child feels like it is their home away from home. I look forward to you and your child becoming part of the family.
Note: We do not have a set schedule except for lunch and nap. We however do try and follow the activities in order to help maintain structure for the children.

This is a hard time for both parent and child. I have an open door policy and the parent is welcome to stay as long as needed. The child is given all the attention needed until they have become settled. Most times the child is fine once the parent is out of sight.
